What is the standard billing for a surgery PA? I read somewhere it’s 20 percent of what the MD bills for but I’m not sure how accurate that is?

It may depend on the type of surgery? Is the PA always first assist? Or are there residents involved too?

PA is first assist. No residents. Mostly GYN surgeries. Robotic, laparoscopic and open. And then c-section as well

Why don’t you ask your billing dept to give you what they are billing for you? I’m in the process of acquiring this for myself from mine. I’m not surgery. But interested.

It was my understanding at least in CA that hospitals are not allowed to bill for an assist if they provide. PA’s can bill but have heard not all insurances will cover an assist.

It can be impossible to deal with financial losses due to declining health or unforeseen circumstances by not having life insurance. In these cases, the solution to your debts (that can affect the financial stability of you or your loved ones) may fall within the category of life insurance.

Hello all,

I'm a PA in the PNW working for a private group staffing ED's in several hospitals. Recently the group has asked the PA's to take on a couple new roles (triaging and rapid track from triage i.e. straightforward ESI 4, 5). With these changes the PA's are considering asking for increased pay in the form of an addition of a COLA (cost of living adjustment) to our normal salary. Was wondering if any other PA's in the ED have these in their contracts and at what rate.

-Thanks
